SOHO Tracks Convergence Invisible from Earth

Io Confirms Dusty Old Theory

EIGHT planets DISCOVERED

Swiss Astronomers have discovered eight new planets, bringing the number

of known planets outside our system to about 40. The objects, circling

stars similar to our Sun, range in mass from less than that of Saturn to

at least 15 times that of Jupiter. The discoveries were made at the European

Southern Observatory's La Silla complex in South America.

SOHO TRACKS CONVERGENCE INVISIBLE FROM EARTH

The SOHO satellite will track the progress of the planets as they line up

out of Earth's field of view on the other side of the sun. The Solar and

Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft has already begun imaging Saturn,

Jupiter and Mercury, which will align with Venus and Mars for their closet

convergence next week.

IO CONFIRMS DUSTY OLD THEORY

Volcanoes on the Jovian Moon Io have long been suspected of being the source

of the dust found in fast-moving streams extending away from Jupiter. A dust

detector on the Galileo spacecraft confirmed Io as the origin of the streams,

first discovered by the Ulysses spacecraft nearly a decade ago.
